T. Madison Treasures

by Michelle Lella


This Black Friday I decided to ditch the crowds and shop local. The best decision I've made in a while! I thought I would make a quick stop at the boutique, TMadison in Chandler but wound up shopping for over an hour! They had sale bins out front and even more when I ventured inside. I scored this off the shoulder, knit sweater, this distressed pair of denim and even a metallic romper for the upcoming holidays. I'm already planning my next trip back because I eyed some perfect, delicate jewelry that will make lovely Christmas presents for friends and family.

 These photos were taken by the lovely Kaitlin Meyers. The day before this shoot, she sat through a whole tattoo with me and distracted me from the pricking of the tattoo gun. This girl is a talented photographer and a full-time friend that I'm so lucky to have! Message her if you're interested in pricing (for photography... she only comes to tattoo appointments with me).

Yes Netflix, I'm still freakin' watching

by Michelle Lella


If Netflix asks me one more time if I'm still watching, I swear I'll switch to Hulu. 

I spent this weekend watching endless episodes of New Girl, wishing I could go through Zooey Deschanel's closet, and wondering if I can get my hair to look like hers...so yeah pretty productive weekend. 

When it comes to my wardrobe, I've been working on adding some fall staples to my closet and that includes this fringe scarf I recently picked up from Nordstrom. Lucky for you guys, it's now 40%, so a total of 9 freakin dollars! I've linked this cute little guy down below and it comes in 3 different colors, so yeah I might be getting a second one as we speak.

I'm so excited for a short week and I think I'm ready to dive into Christmas shopping. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday full of turkey and sweatpants!

Why I'll Never Pay Full Price Again

by Michelle Lella


You guys, to say I'm obsessed with this app might be an understatement. Poshmark has changed my shopping habits and I'll never go back!

First of all, I have to say this post is NOT sponsored, I'm just really passionate about finding clothes and accessories for an affordable price and want to spread the word. If you have an elevated taste and a budget that can't support it (cough cough me) then I think this app might be for you too!

I found this floral pinafore dress on Poshmark the other day and knew I needed this in my closet. I've been drooling over other floral jumpers and this one was the perfect print and color to add to the collection! It was only $15, so kinda a no brainer.

With Poshmark, you can make reasonable offers on any pieces and they even have discounts if you buy more than a certain amount of items from shops. You can also sell your own items and put that money away to bills... or just spend it on the app like I usually wind up doing...

Anyway, if you haven't checked this app out, and you're a committed shopper like myself I highly recommend. My fav brands to scout out are Anthropologie, Madewell and Kendra Scott and I keep finding the best deals! Let me know if any of you lovelies try it and I'd love to hear what you think! 

I'm not sure the brand of this jumper so I linked a few at the bottom that have been on my shopping list! Hope you all had a lovely Monday and happy shopping!

The Perfect Fall Outfit (For AZ)

by Michelle Lella


My favorite part about Arizona fall weather is pairing dresses with short booties! We're just hitting the perfect temperature for this so you better believe I'll be taking advantage of this time.

I paired these double buckle booties from Target (bought last year) with this incredibly comfy, sleeveless dress from one of my fav shops, Pink Blush. I'm a huge fan of Pink Blush because they have a stacked selection of floral, airy dresses that I can't get enough of! They specialize in maternity wear but have an excellent women's section that always peaks my attention.

Photography was provided by the lovely Sam Taylor and you can check out her work here!

Pink Blush Choker Blouse

by Michelle Lella


The AZ weather is finally enjoyable and I couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate than with a photoshoot! I received this blouse recently from Pink Blush and adore the neckline detail. Not to mention, the top is incredibly soft, so definitely a win-win.  Pink Blush specializes in maternity clothes but has a lovely women's section that I just can't get enough of. This top is actually a part of the maternity line, but fits as a flowy, comfortable top on me. (Can't beat that!)

These photos were taken by my talented friend, Kaitlin Meyers and I'm happy to announce that her work will be featured in at RAW:Artists Phoenix on October 19th! To get a ticket please follow the instructions in the link below.

Corduroy Overalls

by Michelle Lella


This photoshoot was right after sushi happy hour and quality time with Bella, which definitely explains why I was so giggly. Nothing beats sashimi and catching up with a dear friend!

I found these corduroy overalls from Forever21 a few weeks ago and even though it's no where near that kind of weather for AZ, I couldn't resist. I had the hardest time pairing it with the right shirt underneath but fell in love when I tried the lace shirt underneath. When trying to build your overall outfit, I found that bodysuits are also a lifesaver. I linked some of my current overall favs and hope you all are enjoying this trend as much as I am!
